Community Awareness 2015


Each season, LHS athletic teams join together and sponsor a Community Awareness Week where athletes, coaches, and fans support a specific cause. During the next several days, you will see several of our fall sports teams adding the color orange to their uniforms to show their support for those individuals and families who are struggling with cancer.

Did you know that 43% of men and 37% of women are at risk for developing cancer in the United States? This statistic hit home for our Lutheran High family last spring when senior Derek Griffitts was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Derek completed radiation therapy and continues to undergo chemotherapy treatment. Despite the challenges caused by this treatment, Derek continues to stay strong and attend school regularly.

LHS students and families are encouraged to participate in the following activities to show their continued support for Derek and others who have been effected by this terrible disease:

• Wear an orange #DerekStrong bracelet (to be distributed on Monday, October 5 and on Tuesday, October 6 during Prime Time)​ for a suggested donation of $1. ​
• On Tuesday, October 6, and Monday, October 12, students who wear their bracelets may also enjoy a Sweats Day at school!
• Cheer on our Cougar teams at their ​upcoming ​Community Awareness ​contests:

◦ Football: Oct. 2, 7:00 p.m. vs. St. Dominic
◦ Volleyball: Oct. 6, 4:15/5:15/6:15 p.m. vs. Borgia (C team) and Trinity (JV/V)
◦ Soccer: Oct. 12, 5:00/6:30 vs. Duchesne

As Christians, we take comfort in knowing that although we experience physical challenges here on Earth, God has provided eternal salvation from sin and sickness through the saving work of Jesus Chris​t.

Thanks for your support!
